Re: Truck topper for DIY high top?

I don't know about a truck topper but check out a video (youtube I think) called Compassing. It's about a surfer that built a high top for his van. Good luck with your project.

Re: No spare tire on my dutch doors, what about fuel cans?

I've been carrying the Rotopak 2 gallon gas can on my driver's side for 3 years now with no problems. I only use it when I go to Baja each winter and it has held up to the rough roads (and vibration) with no problems.

Passenger side headlamp issue

Okay. Replaced the driver's side headlamp (lower), still dim. Replaced plug to headlamp, still dim. Checked with tester, juice is getting to the headlamp. Any ideas why it is still dim? Baffled in White Salmon.

Re: My 2000 AWD 8" Lift from South Florida

Beautiful vans! What other mods do you have to make when you go with higher lifts? Longer brake lines? What else?
I have 3" body pucks with slight torsion bar adjustment up front and heavy duty S10 springs and shackles in the rear which gives me
about 4-4 1/2" of lift.

Yeah, Punta Abreojos is a good place to chill. Without some mis-adventure an adventure is no adventure at all.

Re: What did you do to/with your van today?

Just got back from Baja California "adventure" trip. Lots of surfing, windsurfing and some unintentional traversing of 70 miles of serious "Baja 1000" terrain. Changed flat tire half way thru (3" cut in sidewall) and noticed a slight leak in rear differential. Got back to civilization and promptly f...

Re: The Official Off Road Roll Call Thread

Did anything ever become of this? Spring/Summer is coming and it would be fun to try it again. There's at least a few of us here in the Pacific Northwest. Any takers?

The 4" lift is on and now I have leaks at the oil cooler lines. I read somewhere on here that you need to extend the lines but I can't find the post. I asked NAPA and they said they sell the OEM lines but didn't have a clue about extensions. My mechanic says we can take them to a AC/radiator shop an...
